The Cinque Terre is a small portion of the Toscany coast in Italy. The best to go there is to drive, however parking in the summer is complicated. Some of the villages are connected by train, and you can also reach some by boat. What we did was parking in the first village, walking to the second, take the train to another and came back by boat to the first one.

The park of Cinque Terre (part of the UNESCO World Heritage) is a real post-card. I really recommend to try to see the villages from different viewpoint, that’s why walking between villages and then taking a boat is a nice idea. If you want to capture the villages from the boat, use high shutter speed to compensate the boat motion. Regarding focal lens, wide-angle and tele-zoom will be useful.
